A friend ws staying in the hotel
and this was a perfect place for having dinner together. Good selection on menu. Quiet. Excellent service."

If you're in the neighborhood, by
all means stop in. the Maryland crabcake was excellent, and my wife enjoyed her beet salad. The apple pie desert we shared was disappointing....seemed like a Tastycake was tossed in the microwave. Service was attentive. My major quibble, not likely to happen to other diners, was that we were there relatively early in the evening, with many open tables, and we were seated immediately next to a group of a half-dozen very young women celebrating a night out. As the evening wore on, the decibel level increased. I'm not sure why restaurants seat diners next to each other early in the evening when it's unnecessary."

Server was awesome. Food was
average. I would definitely go back again. Nice date spot."

Tried an alternate pre-game
location -- away from the crowds, it worked well! Gotta love the special tater tots app!!!"

On our way to Verizon Center with
Grandchildren and this was a decent restaurant to take them before Wizards game."

Great food. Great drinks. Great
staff. Perfect for meeting with client."

We didn't know there was a hockey
game scheduled. Never imagined that a reservation for 8 would be a challenge in walking distance from our office on a Tuesday. We were "just" excited to sit together. But it was a great find. I think the "foodies" would have liked a more expansive wine list, but everyone enjoyed the apps and their entrees. Volume in the restaurant was perfect for conversation and a good time was had by all. Thanks!"

Food is really great! Staff are so
friendly and helpful. Dining in Finn & porter is the best. I will bring my family and friends next week to have dinner. Thank you very much!"

It took over 45 minutes to get our
order and the lunch was over 2 hours long. There were times when I could not find the waiter for any update on my food. My glass sat empty and the food was "okay.""

We had some great Margarita
Flatbread with balsamic which we craved for days after... along with the Lump Crab Bisque. Both were Very very good!! Will be back when we are in DC."

Ate at Finn & Porter this week.
The service was quite slow for our small group of six. While the food itself was fine, there was very limited selection. The decor was alright and there was nothing particularly terrible about the visit, but we all agreed that we would not go back again."

Ate there before walking to the
mall for the 4th of July celebration - it was a great way to start the event! Great for kids too!"
Dined on 7/5/2013
Tables for 24 were set in the
middle of traffic thoroughfare. Very poor service, half our orders were filled the other half we had to seek. This included, drinks, soups, diners and desserts. Ambiance was NOT. Other dinners appeared to have some of the same difficulties as we experienced, i.e. wrong orders served, delays, etc. Bills were a total mess. I do not recommend this location to any one for anything."

Perhaps I viewed the menu for the
Finn & Porter in another city by mistake, so was surprised by the limited menu. From their website nothing prepared me for what was a very average hotel restaurant. We had planned a special occasion and were very disappointed. I had a thin steak and iceberg wedge. I could have done better at Applebees for a fraction of the price."

First time dining in DC location
after dining many times in Alexandria location. Surprised by the sparse menu! Service was slow despite the limited number of diners (mostly sorority members) for a Sunday lunch."
Dined on 7/14/2013
Menu has been redone from a higher
end selections to a more general main stream selections. Wine Spectator rated wine list was nothing to be amazed by. Noise level was quite loud."
Dined on 8/4/2013
Our service was slow, the food was
awful, we had the beef slider Nacho's; there was little to no cheese on them and what was there was over cooked and dryed on. Then we tried the sliders which weren't much better. The restaurant wasn't crowded but our lunch took for ever. Clearly you all don't cater to the office workers in your area. We need to get in and out in less than an hour. I also ordered crab soup which was good but came with cilantro sprinkled all over it! Ughhhh! We had to ask multiple people and multiple times for different things. I can't say that I would return any time soon."

After a week of service work in
DC, we just wanted a great steak and good service. We had both! Our server was attentive and the food excellent!"
Dined on 7/20/2013
Lacking ambiance, I felt deceived
because we had no idea this was a hotel restaurant. My fault for not doing a lot more research. The food was ok, but way over-priced. Drinks were more expensive than many DC restaurants. For the $300 we spent for 3 people to eat and drink, I would have much preferred Ruth's Chris!"
Dined on 7/17/2013
Menu was not the same as it was on
the App. Totally different and although the food was good it was not what I was looking forward to. Also it should be noted that this is a hotel restaurant."
Dined on 7/14/2013
We checked into the hotel late
Friday night and my son and I were starving, we decided to check out the hotel restaurant and was not disappointed at all. We had ministone soup and a salad and it was very good, the food came out very quick and definitely hit the spot. We sat in the dinning room with Stephen and he was excellent, very attentive and even though we were his last table we were treated like his first. He was able to give us tips on what to see and do in DC and made us feel right at home."
Dined on 7/3/2013
When I looked at the menu, I
thought the prices looked good, but the portions are tiny and the food isn't anything special. Also, I given the name of the restaurant, I thought this would be a steak and seafood restaurant (a play on "fins" and porterhouse), but it's an Italian restaurant. Decent food, but nothing to write home about. Average for a hotel restaurant."

We were staying in the hotel and
were celebrating my 11 yr old grandaughters birthday. We had a 5pm reservation and were stuck in DC traffic for 2 hours. Moved our time up twice and ended up getting there 2 hours later before the Bruno Mars concert and had to eat quickly. I ordered our meal and explained to our server. The food was served within 10 minutes. All staff was attentive, courteous and we ended up coming back after the concert for a more relaxed late night snack and found the service to be the same excellence. The food was great and the service we received really started our night off perfectly after a stressful time getting to DC."

My dinner at Finn & Porter was
disappointing. The kitchen had run out of the flatbread pizza so I had to make do with 2 appetizers for my meal. The caprese salad was described as being made with teardrop tomatoes but it came out with just ordinary cherry tomatoes. The table bread was tasty but served in stingy portions."
Dined on 6/19/2013
This restaurant was known for
steaks and sushi. Neither is offered in the current menu. I ordered a steak medium rare and got a steak that was medium well. The staff was attentive and energetic but the food was disappointing at best."

The night we were there we were
one of only a handful of groups. Thus the ambiance was a bit off. The service and food were very good however."
Dined on 5/4/2013
The service was attentive, the
portions were generous. The food was good but not great. I did find the waiter was helpful and accommodating with a substitution I wanted to make with my meal."

After a long flight across the
country my wife and I were looking to grab a quick bite to eat. We decided to check out the hotel restaurant and we were very impressed. Are server Steven was very engaging and knowledgeable about the whole menu. We started out with some cocktails and then Steven suggested a bottle of organic red wine that paired very nicely with our meals. My wife had the butternut squash and I had the chicken marsala and they were both outstanding. Steven timed the wine and the courses perfectly and after a long agrivating flight to DC my wife and I left very happy."

Had a lovely late lunch following
the theater, food was wonderful, cocktails superb and service spectacular!"
Dined on 4/13/2013
Delicious food, fast and friendly
service, quiet atmosphere. Will definitely go back!"
Dined on 4/9/2013
The staff was very friendly. Our
waiter, Darrell, was friendly and attentive, with light conversation. The tables were spaced far enough apart that we didn't feel crowded at all. The food was very good. We had the appetizer sampler. The calamari was crisp and tender, not chewy. The pasta di mare was really good, as was the salmon. It's a nice gem by the Verizon Center, great for a preconcert dinner. We will return."
Dined on 4/8/2013
The restaurant was very good. The
food and the service was great. The only problem was that when we got there they seemed to be short staffed and no one was working the front desk. It made it difficult to check in with our reservation. We had to wait ten minutes before anyone even acknowledged our presence. Other than that the rest of the experience was great. We were sat next to the fireplace which was really nice. Our server was really sweet and offered suggestions. The food was delicious as well."

Wait staff demonstrated affable
incompetence. The food was essentially tasteless and warm because if the excessive time under the heat lamp. Save your money and grab a hot dog at the street vender on the corner..."
Dined on 3/29/2013
This is a hotel restaurant. I
thought the food was very good. The server, Gordon, was timely and very nice. I will consider for future dining whenever I'm in DC."
Dined on 3/26/2013
Awesome food with good service.
Was a little noisy, but no fault of the restaurant. A family had kids running around."
Dined on 3/23/2013
This place has potential, but no
soul. The server was hard to locate. My $10 salad included some dry, overcooked chicken breast unfit for human consumption.ALthough the restaurant was 20% full, nobody dropped by to ask if I enjoyed my lunch. I had to chase down someone to bring me a check. They have potential, but I am not sure I would return."
